Weymouth Personal Injury Lawyers
Weymouth is located in Norfolk County, in the South Shore region of the Boston metropolitan area. It is the second oldest town in the Commonwealth, dating from 1622 when it was founded as “Wessagusset.” In 2010, CNN/Money Magazine named Weymouth as a “Best Place to Live”.

As a town located outside of the Greater Boston area, many of Weymouth’s residents commute to work during rush hour. Unfortunately, as the Boston metropolitan area continues to grow with the number of individuals on the road, the rate of accidents also rises. Collisions including cars, motorcycles, trucks, and buses continue to increase due to the negligence of other drivers and individuals who do not pay closer attention to the road and are distracted by cell phone usage. Weymouth has unfortunately been the area for several recent head-on collisions, caused by the negligence and inattention of drivers on the road. Whether the accident was due to a driver drifting across the centerline on a one-lane road or falling asleep at the wheel or texting while driving, the consequences of a head-on collision can be devastating. Motorcycle accidents can be especially harmful for the motorcycle rider, due to the lack of protective gear and equipment. Motorcycle injuries may include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, lacerations and abrasions due to road rash, burns, and amputations.
The Commonwealth continues to develop various areas around Boston with the growing population and a desire to better the state. Weymouth follows in this trend with a new building replacement project in Weymouth Landing, which currently houses the Landing Pub and Ultimate Pizza. Regrettably, construction sites and zones are very dangerous areas for construction workers and individuals who are walking, driving, or living near the sites. Industrial accidents may be the result of poor training, defective equipment, or a failure to adhere to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements and regulations. Workers injured on construction sites may have two sources of compensation for their medical bill and lost wages. A few forms of compensation include weekly payments, retraining the injured worker and providing them with a different position within the company, or new training for pursuing other employment. Additionally, the Massachusetts worker’s compensation system provides payment for all injured workers, regardless of fault. In addition, if a third party, such as a contractor or subcontractor was responsible for the injury, the worker may be eligible for a claim against the third party.
